Default Snow Chains on a 407

Hi - recently acquired a 2005 407 SW (and a lot of problems) but need to get some chains for a ski trip to France. The manual states that chains should not be fitted and to consult peugeot. Some suppliers supply chains for the wheel/tyre size and some state they fit a 407. Is it a clearance problem? Should I go for 7mm rather than 9mm chains? Has anyone fitted chains and is there really a problem.
Thanks for any help

I really would think getting some proper winter tires would be the right thing to do.

The chains will probably chew up your inner arches and maybe also hit the sill etc. so wouldn't really use that.
